Also a Logan University graduate and an excellent St. Louis chiropractor, Dr. Nelson came to chiropractic care from a very personal experience with a lower back injury he sustained during his military service. The miraculous back pain relief that gave him his life back caused him to passionately pursue his chiropractic studies and now we are honored to have him work with us.
Dr. Nelson’s certifications and qualifications include the following:
Chiropractors aren’t medical doctors because they don’t have an M.D., but they do have a doctor of chiropractic degree. They have considerable chiropractic training and are licensed chiropractors.
Chiropractors begin their education by earning a bachelor’s degree with a science focus. Following graduation, individuals enroll in a four-year chiropractic curriculum that includes both classroom and hands-on training.
All states in the United States require chiropractors to hold a doctor of chiropractic degree from a college authorized by the Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE).
Some chiropractors opt to focus on a certain area of practice. They complete a second residency that lasts between two and three years. There are over a hundred distinct chiropractic techniques to choose from. There is no guarantee that one strategy is superior to another.
Some chiropractors prefer to specialize in a number of different areas, describing their approach as “diversified” or “integrated.”
Regardless of expertise, all chiropractors must pass an exam to acquire a license to practice. They must also attend frequent continuing education classes to stay current in the area.
